Erie Federal Credit Union Robbed at Gunpoint

Posted: Updated:
Erie Federal Credit Union at Greengarden Blvd and the Bayfront Connector was robbed at gunpoint on Friday, at 3:53pm.

The suspect allegedly showed a handgun and got away with an undisclosed amount of cash. Police describe the suspect as a male in his early 20s, standing 5' 5'' or 5' 6'' in height.

He was last seen wearing an orange hat, an orange striped polo, and dark sunglasses. They describe his ethnicity as "bi-racial or possibly hispanic."

Police say he fled on foot, though some witnesses say he eventually got into a blue or green SUV.  Officers are still working to confirm if a getaway vehicle was involved.

The federal union's CEO, Brian Waugaman, said their employees responded to procedure as trained, and that Friday marked the first time this location of the federal credit union had been robbed.

"The safety of our employees are of utmost importance to us, and we're glad no one was hurt," he Waugaman said.
